Everyone's telling us about their tee shirts. Well, some people are. It must be coming up to Christmas or something, they do make a good pressy even if it'll be may before you actually get to wear the thing if last year is anything to go by. Here's some of the stuff we've seen of late...
Okay, shameless plug we know. But you can get argyled-up now with your very own road.cc tee from our very own road.cc shop. Okay the shop is in its infancy but there's more stuff to come, don't you worry about that. head over to www.road.cc/shop to get your hands on one! There's three colours (Chocolate, Grey and Blue) made from ethically sourced, Fairtrade organic cotton… the Grey and the Chocolate ones are even climate neutral, and you can have one for £17 including postage.
The nice chaps from Spokeshirts got in touch to tell us about their famous climbs series. Nice and simple, they just have the name of the hill – Alpe D'Huez, Col du Tourmalet, Mont Ventoux and Col de la Madeleine – in big, with the height an country (France, then) smaller. They're classy looking and come in black, red or dark blue. If you want one they're £14.95 including delivery. www.spokeshirts.co.uk
Laek House have an 'Icon Series' on the go at the moment, featuring classic bits of Campagnolo kit on grey or white tees. There's a choice of Pista cranks, Sheriff star hubs or Delta brakes, and the shirts are $33 including shipping from the US of A. www.laekhouse.com
Okay, we'll fess up and say we've been sitting on these for a while, but haven't got round to writing about them until now. There are four shirts in Peloton racer's range; our faves are the Campionissimo and Kannibaal tees, homages to Coppi and Merckx respectively. There's also a Milan-San Remo tee featuring the photo finish between Cav and Heinrich Haussler, and a Stijn Devolder one too. They're £20 a go. www.pelotonracer.com
We went round to see Morvelo earlier in the year and since then they've been growing in stature, not least because of their tie-in with Kinesis. They've always made good looking tees right from the off, this Super domestique is one of our faves (Tony is wearing it even as we speak) but there's a big range of styles. All tees are £20. www.morvelo.com
